Marvel's Agent Carter Adds The Americans' Costa Ronin

Costa Ronin is trading one set of agents for another.

The actor, who played KGB operative Oleg on The Americans, is joining the cast of ABC’s upcoming Marvel’s Agent Carter. He’ll play Anton Vanko, “the father of one of Tony Stark’s deadliest foes,” according to (Anton’s son Ivan was memorably played by Mickey Rourke in the big-screen smash Iron Man 2.)

Set in 1946, Agent Carter finds Peggy balancing administrative work for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) with secret missions for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, reprising his Captain America role), all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, having lost the love of her life, Steve Rogers.

The eight-episode Agent Carter will debut Tuesday, Jan. 6 at 9/8c, occupying Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s time slot during the winter hiatus.
